There are many reasons why pruning a tree is important. With proper pruning, a tree can be made to grow into a certain configuration of limbs and branches that is more ideal for the structural integrity of the tree. Maintaining the tree's structure helps to mitigate the risk of broken limbs and falling branches.
Pruning a tree is removing specific branches or stems to benefit the whole tree. Remove dead, damaged and diseased branches to help prevent insect & decay organisms from entering the tree. Thin a dense canopy on a tree to increase air and sunlight, resulting in fewer disease problems.
The best time to prune hardwood trees is in the dormant season, winter, or late November to early March. The worst time for pruning these trees is from mid-March to late June. Hardwood trees should be pruned every year from the second to fourth years and then once in three years.
Corrective pruning allows you to remove the sections of a plant or tree that aren't growing in the shape we'd like. Examples where corrective pruning are needed include branches rubbing against each other or overhanging limbs and tree branches that obstruct visibility or create unsafe property conditions.
Hurricanes and tropical storms hit Florida almost every year, often causing extensive damage to trees. But you can easily make your trees more hurricane-resistant, so they are less likely to suffer damage during a major storm. Correct pruning is the most important part of helping trees survive hurricanes. Train young trees so they develop a sturdy, well-spaced framework of healthy branches along a dominant trunk. Maintain this form as far up into the tree as possible by reducing the length of competing stems and branches.
Hire a professional to prune your trees before the hurricane season. We will remove dead branches that can fall on houses, cars, and people. Overly long branches should be shortened and branches with cracks removed or shortened. Branches with the same diameter as the trunk will be shortened and the outer edges (not the interior) of the canopy will be thinned, making your tree less likely to be blown over. Low branches that are close to your roof should be removed or shortened, as well. Be sure to have your trees evaluated by a professional about every two years.
